|Route outline (key)|
The DfT's 2005 Road list states that the superseded section of the A572 along Lord Street in Leigh was to gain the number B5255. However, in practice the road has become a spur of the neighbouring B5215, whose mainline is the former route of the A579.
Starting in a corner of the Market Place the route heads eastwards along the one-way Lord Street to leave the town centre. A TOTSO right at a T-junction takes the road onto a new alignment built along with the guided busway in 2015 to journey's end at traffic lights at the eastern end of the A572 relief road.
